, the chairman outside, that i spent much of the last week at a mine disaster in a rural part of west virginia. amongst all of the horrible things that come out after experience like that, one of the most disturbing was the fact that not one person there, the rescue people trying to get inside mine officials, miners families, most importantly, trying to call people in detroit or akron or wherever they might be, couldn't do that. there is no cell phone service in that part of the state. and it is not the most rural part of the state. that made me angry. putting ideas on paper is just not enough. just seeking comment on a slew of issues is not enough. to me, 10 years after 9/11, it is action that counts. let me tell you why. in west virginia, one in five households lack access to broadband service. as this plan notes,ly 71% of the state's population has access to 3g wireless service. every day that goes by, communities without broadband in west virginia and every state in the country, and no state doesn't have remote, rural parts to it, risks falling father behind. in this new century, broadband

. in this case, actually the reason that one of the armed rallies was able to be held in virginia on national parkland was because of a bill signed by president obama. in many cases what we're seeing is a phantom menace. the evidence of fright-wing politics. people very afraid in a time of anxiety and economic distress, willing to believe the worst in their government. they're being fed a steady diet of fear and hate and politics and it has a trickle down effect as we learned 15 years ago. >> some saw the fact that they were protesting on april 19, the anniversary of the oklahoma city bombing as offensive. but this wasn't tied to the oklahoma city bombing. >> no. >> there are other events on this day. >> april 19 has taken on a tallasmanic performance. but it's also the 235th answer versery of lexington and concord. waco occurred on april 19. that is what inspired timothy mcveigh to murder 168 men, women and children in oklahoma city. and a long series of events. the larger themes are one of resistance, and vulnerability. but we have an obligation to learn from her rour history. it's about le
